FUJIFILM Object Archive and Tiger Bridge solutions enable cost-effective, open, and future-proof way of archiving and preserving massive amounts of data

Valhalla, N.Y., July 29, 2021 - FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. announces a joint marketing alliance with Tiger Technology (Alpharetta, Ga.) to provide business customers with a long-term, secure, and scalable storage management solution for the seamless movement of data from a primary storage tier to tape storage.

Integrating Fujifilm’s Object Archive software with Tiger Technology’s Tiger Bridge software offers active archiving to tape while preserving the entire chain of custody. The resulting environment provides a complete archiving solution to simplify the management and archive of unstructured data, and its movement into low-cost, long-term storage. 

How the two software solutions work together:
The Tiger Bridge solution monitors and manages selected areas of the local file system, then identifies data based on metadata attributes to move it to the FUJIFILM Object Archive platform. Aging content can be actively archived - meaning that aged files no longer reside on local disk space, yet remain fully visible and accessible to users and applications. Once this content is archived, FUJIFILM Object Archive software provides a secure, long-term archival copy on tape, with a physical air-gap, while permitting continued access to the data. This provides immutable data copies that can help prevent a ransomware or cryptolock attack on a network. 

“Working together, Tiger Bridge and FUJIFILM Object Archive software products provide a comprehensive archive solution that scales seamlessly as archive needs increase,” says Tom Nakatani, vice president of sales and marketing, FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. “The combined environment offers secure data protection for sensitive digital assets while minimizing the total cost of managing long-term data.” 

“Successful long-term archiving is achieved when you have confidence in immediately accessing your data, even when today’s technology fails you,” says Lance Kelson, executive vice president at Tiger Technology. “Using an open tape format is the essential first step, but one must still be wary of archiving software that encapsulates your content in a proprietary wrapper. The Tiger Bridge solution stores files in their native format when moving data to FUJIFILM Object Archive software, thereby preserving the chain of custody and avoiding vendor lock.”
